AuKids celebrates its fifth birthday with a cover that features all our other covers to date. The runaway success of this issue was our Autism Sundae Dessert, a positive and rounded way of describing autism that captured the imagination of parents and professionals alike. Professionals loved it because it made autism easy to describe and parents felt that for once all they had to do was hand it over and family members would at last ‘get it’.

In this issue we also launched AuKids’ new clothing range, with positive slogans on T-shirts and Hoodies to promote autism in a friendly light.
